How do I flash my GTX 780 ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I bought a Palit GTX 780 for my brother and was wondering if its possible to flash it with my EVGA Superclocked bios seeing as the hardware is exactly the same and the only difference is the bios, Would this be possible ?

Factory OC'ed cards are binned a bit higher; use MSI afterburner to match clocks, no flashing required. Usually BIOSes are vendor specific anyways.

Only cards like Lightning and Classified are binned - the regular factory overclocked cards like the Superclocked are nothing special at all.  But there is no reason to flash a different BIOS - the card should boost to its limit no matter what BIOS is on it, the only reason to put a different BIOS would be if you modified it in some way (power limit or voltage usually).

Main reason I want to flash it is that EVGA brought out an updated bios that fixes some motherboard incompatibility issues and Palit haven't and I doubt they will as Palit are not known for their great after sales support ergo wanting to flash it to the EVGA bios.

Oh, I see.  You should be able to flash it, although you may have to force it through NVFlash if it gave you a vendor mismatch error, but I don't know what changes they may have made the might be EVGA specific.  Probably none, but some people who tried flashing other vendor BIOSes on 6xx cards ran into trouble, IIRC.

What? Of course they're binned, albeit at lower reqs than cherry picked lightnings/classifieds. As different chips have different stabilities (use of dye or other indicators) at different voltages, they just choose the most stable chips and apply such adjusted voltages. In conjunction with redesigned PCBs for certain models, and extraneous components they "bin" them as FTW, Classified, SC+, etc.

Not in a way that provides any additional overclocking ability they aren't.  Obviously all chips are binned to some extent, but in you won't consistently get better overclocks from a "normal" factory overclocked card (I'm talking EVGA Superclocked, Gigabyte OC, that kind of low-range overclocked cards here).  That's been true for a while.
